That's a lot of questions !
Q1)A ladder of a fire truck is elevated to an angle of 60 degrees and extended to a length of 70 feet. if the base of the ladder is 7 fet above the ground, how many feet above the ground does the ladder reach?
The ladder forms a 30 60 90, triangle which has dimentions 1x \(\sqrt{3}\) 2, the hip is \(70=2x\) so \(x=35\), the H of the triangle is \(35\sqrt{3}\), but the ladder is 7 feet from the ground => it reaches \(7+35\sqrt{2}\)
IMO D _________________

Q3) for any psitive integer n, the sum fo the first n positive integers equals [n(n+1)]/2. what si the sum of all the even integers betwen 99 and 301?
100 ... 200 ... 300 Between 200 and 100 there are 200/2-100/2+1=51 even integers Between 300 and 200 there are 300/2-200/2+1=51 even integers But we counted 200 twice, so tot even entegers = \(51+51-1=101.\) As you can see their mean is 200 So tot sum is\(200*101=20200\) IMO B _________________

Sum of all even integers is Avg. * count of numbers in series 99 - 301
Avg = first + last / 2 = 100 + 300 / 2 = 200 count of numbers in the series = 300 - 100 / 2 + 1 = 101
Sum = 200 * 101 = 20200. Answer is B

Q5) of the 300 subjects who participated in an experiment using virtual reality therapy to reduce their fear of heights, 40% experienced sweaty palms, 30% experienced vomiting, and 75% experienced dizziness. If all the subjects experienced at least one of these effects, and 35 % of the subjects experienced exactly two of these effects, how may of the subjects experienced only one of these effects?
Use the formula : Tot = S+V+D-(two)+2(three) = 100
300 = 120 + 90 + 225 - 105 - 2*(three) so 15 had all three
To see the number of subjects with 1 effect: S+V+D-2*two-3*three = 435 - 210 - 45 = 180

No of even terms between 99 and 301-->(300-100)/2 +1 = 101. Thus the sum = \(101/2 * (100+300)\) = 200*101 = 20200 B. _________________

Let x represent subjects who experienced only sweaty palms Let y represent subjects who experienced only vomiting Let z represent subjects who experienced only dizziness Let a represent subjects who experienced only sweaty palms and dizziness Let b represent subjects who experienced only sweaty palms and vomiting Let c represent subjects who experienced only vomiting and dizziness Let d represent subjects who experienced vomiting, sweaty palms, and dizziness

Q7. Mean of 7 wood pieces = 68 therefore total length of 7 pieces = 68 * 7 = 476 cms
Median of 7 pieces = 84 To have the 7th piece of maximum length we must have 4th, 5th, 6th piece = median length of 84 and 1st, 2nd and 3rd piece = smallest wood length.

Here the word EXCLUDING is used. So 0.15 * 207=$31.05 Therefore,207-31.05=$175.95
So the average cost per person=175.75/15=11.73 So ans should be (A) IMO.
